Quotable Quote

“The Word is a power, a sword, in the hands of the human agent, but the Holy Spirit, in its vital power, is the efficiency to impress the mind.”

 E.G. White, Sons & Daughters, p. 30.

The ‘Woe’ Side of the Seventh Trumpet

If you have been lackadaisically lumbering along on the treadmill of prophetic mediocrity, self-assured, Laodicean-like, that you are already settled and nestled in a safe space, just awaiting the amazing that will happen when Christ returns “any minute now,” please be warned: Though appearing to be a good read from many a religious literature, and easy listening sounds emanating from many pulpits in Christendom, this, in fact, is anything but the sure thing.

Ecumenical Movement Entering its Penultimate Stage

     “Jews, Evangelicals reach out to Sunni Gulf Arab leaders.” This was the headline of a news story simultaneously appearing and similarly titled in at least 32 news outlets on Tuesday this week. The editorial boards/staffs of these news outlets unitedly perceived its newsworthy nature– from whatever angle, agenda, and editorial policies each had that determined its value.  Should we be interested too? And how much?

Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

Signs of the Times. . . Have Changed: ‘Guns and God: Growing Number of Churches Want Armed Security’

     “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.” Psalms 34: 7, K.J.V.   

Beginning after Pentecost, A.D. 1, the church (in contrast to the world), founded upon Christ as the Rock and Foundation by the first Twelve, undergoes its prophesied periods. It is now in its seventh and final remnant period, symbolized as the “Laodicean church,” spiritually lukewarm yet militant.” See on Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

All throughout its different yet successive periods, particularly now in its commandment-keeping, remnant stage, the faithful of each period who kept the flame of truth burning, well-understood and faithfully applied apostle Paul’s injunction, which says:

Do We Really Know the Prophets/Prophecies that We Need to Know?

Do We Really Know the Prophets/Prophecies that We Need to Know?

         Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 Peter 1: 20, 21, N.K.J.V.

Verse 19 of these scriptures says: “We also have the prophetic word made more sure, which you do well to take heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts.” 

How is the prophetic word made more sure? If we pay heed to—not just to any prophecies often introduced with curiosity-arousing “new” interpretations that ignore the “precept upon precept, line upon lite, here a little, there a little” test of Isaiah 28: 9,10, 13, but to thosemade more sure, i.e.,  secured and vetted by the sheer preponderance and weight of the combined, exhaustive, harmonious continuum of the corroborating prophetic testimonies of God’s Old and New Testament prophets/messengers.  All their prophecies and messages were, in fact,testimonies pointing to the Prophet to come, the Messiah, “the Holy One and the Just.” to come, Jesus Christ the Righteous.

How is the ‘House of Jacob is Replenished from the East’?

How is the ‘House of Jacob is Replenished from the East’? 

“Therefore Thou hast forsaken Thy people, the house of Jacob because they are replenished from the east [‘filled with Eastern ways, N.K.J.V.].” Isaiah 2:6, K.J.V.

“Prophets are subject to prophets” and “no prophecy is of any private interpretation.” (1 Cor. 14: 32; 2 Pet. 1: 20). Thus, following in the line of prophets and their thread of prophecy, E. G. White explains in today’s language what John expressed in prophetic language: “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” Rev. 16: 13, 14. What are these?

The Three-fold Union of Romanism, Apostate Protestantism and Spiritualism—not Islam

Here’s the early stage of the final threefold union of religion of Revelation 16: “By the decree enforcing the institution of the Papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation [the United States] will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. WhenProtestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp the hands of Spiritualism, when under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous workings of Satan and that the end is near!” – E. G. White,Maranatha, p. 190.

What Happened to the Movement Linking the Exodus and Advent Movements?

What Happened to the Movement Linking the Exodus and Advent Movements?

 “Thus says the Lord: Keep My justice, and do righteousness, for My salvation is about to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who lays hold on it; who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.” Isiah 56: 1, 2, N.K.J.V.

We saw that the Protestant Reformation Movement was the connecting link between the Exodus in the Old and the Advent Movement in the New Testament.  God commanded the gospel prophet, Isaiah, to declare then and more specifically in in its antitypical application: “Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet. Tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

The Only Real Celestial Star-Spangled Movement

The Only Real Celestial Star-Spangled Movement

I looked when he opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Rev. 6: 12, 13, N.K.J.V.

In the prophesied final coming storm, relentless in its fury, we have the full assurance that the Advent Movement will continue withstanding the closest scrutiny of Scriptures undertaken by any truth-loving, diligent Bible student. It has already achieved this as well as the test of time. Whether they are aware not, this has been attested to by a cross-section of religious, secular, and scientific authorities. Thus will it withstand the most desperate and concerted efforts by last day scoffers, naysayers and enemies of the testing truths of the three angels’ messages.

Tracing the Advent Movement from Its Embryonic Origins

God still works in mysterious ways. This past Sunday evening, as I sat in front of my computer, my eyes wandered on its own towards a faded, soft-bound book squeezed between larger books arranged in my computer’s book shelf. (I am old school, preferring to read directly from the book itself where my fingers can feel its pages and hear the soft, rustling sound as I flip through them. Sorry. E-books deny me this satisfaction).

The ‘Seven Thunders’ portray prophesied events within the prophecies of the first and second angel’s messages

The ‘Seven Thunders’ portray prophesied events within the prophecies of the first and second angel’s messages

       Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle (dove) and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but My people know not the judgment of the Lord. Jeremiah 8: 7, K.J.V.

SEVEN is a significant number in the Bible. It denotes perfection and completeness, and is often referred to as God’s number. It suggests the height of: purification, worship, the gospel light, Spirits, seals, trumpets, angels, heads and crowns, plagues, and kings. On the other hand, thunder, literally a sound produced by lightning is figurative of God’s power (Job 26: 14); control (Ps. 104: 7); majesty (Rev. 4: 5), and visitations of judgment (Rev. 11: 19).   Read more

Revelation Chapter 10: the Parenthetical Prophecy between the Prophecies of the Sixth and Seventh Trumpets

Revelation Chapter 10: the Parenthetical Prophecy between the Prophecies of the Sixth and Seventh Trumpets

     “Surely the Lord God will do nothing but He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3: 7.  “Prophets are subject to the prophets.” 1 Cor. 14: 32.

Not unlike the initially complex “wheels within wheels” that the prophet Ezekiel saw in vision (Exe. 1: 1-21; 10: 2-19, etc.), there are shorter time prophecy clusters contained within the longest time prophecy of the Bible—the 2,300 day (year) prophecy of Daniel 8:14.     Read more
